I've customized my terminal theme but I'd like to be able to share it with people. I know I've been able to download ".terminal" files, in the past. Where are these files located on a Mac?
Here's how to export a Terminal theme (profile settings) from
Terminal->Help->Terminal Help, search for "exporting".
To export a theme (profile settings file):
Export profile settings
- Choose Terminal->Preferences, then click Profiles
- Drag a profile from the Profiles list to the Finder
Terminal creates a settings file in the Finder that can be used on another computer.
To import a profile setting:
Import a settings file
If you want to use the settings from another computer, you can import a Terminal settings file from that other computer.
The file name of the Terminal settings file usually ends with a “.terminal” extension.
Before you can import the settings file, it must be exported from the other system and placed in a location where you can access it.
- Choose Terminal > Preferences, then click Profiles.
- In the Finder, locate the settings file, then drag it to the Profiles list.
